strnlen


SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       size_t strnlen(const char *s, size_t maxlen);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       strnlen():
           Since glibc 2.10:
               _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
           Before glibc 2.10:
               _GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  strnlen()  function returns the number of characters in the string
       pointed to by s, excluding the terminating null bye ('\0'), but at most
       maxlen.   In doing this, strnlen() looks only at the first maxlen char-
       acters at s and never beyond s+maxlen.

RETURN VALUE
       The strnlen() function returns strlen(s), if that is less than  maxlen,
       or  maxlen if there is no null byte ('\0') among the first maxlen char-
       acters pointed to by s.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2008.
